I think I'll skip on the car cover (and armoring a bear, and a jeep cover, and the 20 robots that you all are planning to make, and the Chrysler Building tapestry-thing, and a christmas tree, and...) although building a real-life house doesn't sound so horrible any more!!

Right now, I think I'm going to try to incorprate the marble-sculpture part and the jewelry box and see how that would work out.

BTW, I completely agree there should be a WikiMaille section to this site.

-Niscient. -Nipotent would be all powerful. Of course, if you were truly omniscient, you would know that already. Razz

Not sure how well the snow chains would hold up, but something similar for my boots in the winter might be interesting... And I'm pretty sure a chainmail car cover would wreak havoc with the paint job. Razz

I suspect the word you'r looking for then is "penomniscient", or possibly "quasi-omniscient".

So you cover a car with a crappy paint job! No big deal.

Divider shelves for your freezer.
Divider wall for a room in your house?
Changing stall.
A sandwich?
Seat covers.
Halloween decorations.
Functional rims for glasses.

Well, if it was anything similar to the crochet car cover, then it would completely cover the paint so the paint job wouldn't matter.

Ooooo....I like this one. A curtain, not really enough to be solid but enough to make different spaces. It'd look very nice if done well.

most of these things are doable as sculpture if you scale them down..

sure, make a planet, with a scale space shuttle launching..
i like these ideas.


PSA: remember to stretch.
